I did recompile the kernel, per advice, but I still don't see any drivers (I
removed usbhid from my kernel)...the device now looks like:

addr 1: full speed, self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000),
Intel(0x0000), rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 addr 2: low speed, self powered, config 1, TRIPP LITE UPS(0x4003),
Tripp Lite(0x09ae), rev 0.00

My ups.conf:


So any other ideas welcome. I invoke usbhid-ups with the following:

./usbhid-ups -a tripplite -x explore -u root

I added -x vendorid=09ae and changed the vendorid to 4003 as well. No luck.
Any ideas?
